You were damn near gift-wrapped a spot in the NC Game and somehow ****ed it up. If I were a ku fan, that would keep me up at night, as idle thoughts of killing Jamie Skeen crossed my brain......
If we're getting into specifics, yes that sucks too. Count me as someone who whooped and hollered after Louisville, Vanderbilt, Purdue, and Notre Dame lost. I thought there was no way we don't at least get to the title game. So yeah, that was part of the kick in the nuts.
But the overall waste of talent the last two years in general knaws at me no matter what path we had to the final. The '10 and '11 teams were arguably the best if not one of the top 2 or 3 teams in the regular season. We didn't even get a Final 4 out of them.
